of confidence from president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton. the president called rice extraordinary during a cabinet meeting that she attended. clinton led a round of applause for rice, who is considered to be the front-runner to be nominated as clinton's successor, a point clinton later touched on during a news conference. >> susan rice has done a great job as our ambassador to the united nations and, of course, this decision about my successor is up to the president, but i'm very happy he has the opportunity with a second term to make a decision. >> but on capitol hill tennessee republican senator bob corker spoke with rice wednesday and later warned the president that the job of secretary of state is held at a higher standard than his other appointees. >>> elsewhere, later today, "time" magazine will release a provocative exclusive. the magazine calls egyptian president mohammed morsi the most important man in the middle east. president morsi tells "time" that although he's been in office only five months, he is promising a parliament and elections in the next comin
. the cause for all the concern right now including the statements from president obama and secretary clinton is the reports from this weekend. reports from this weekend quoting intelligence sources saying there was "heightened activity at some of syria's chemical weapons sites." raising the prospect that the government might feel like they are losing the war they are fighting with conventional weapons and may be looking to their chemical weapons supplies out of desperation. there's no reason to be alarmist about this going on, but this is also alarming enough now that it makes sense to be paying attention and paying attention closely. and toward that end, i want to highlight one other detail of the story. the last time the international community noticed unusual activity around syria's chemical weapons site, the last time the world freaked out that maybe the syrians were going to gas their own people, the last time this happened was in july. and in july this is who stood up for the syrian government and said, don't worry t will never happen. >> any unconventional weapon that the public posse

options to secure syria's chemical and biological weapons. president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton both issued warnings to syria monday after intelligence picked up signs the assad regime might be making preparations of some kind with its large stockpile of chemical weapons. >> i want to make it absolutely clear to assad and those under his command the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. and if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable. >> meanwhile, "the new york times" reports russia appears to be weakening in its steadfast support for president assad. the senior turkish official says moscow agreed to a new approach that would seek ways to persuade assad to relinquish power. >>> kate middleton remains in a london hospital today as the world learns she is expecting. there is a sign of how much thins changed since another royal pregnancy, the one that would lead to the birth of her husband, prince william. remember this? >> lady diana spencer became the pri

for you sos i got it right but i read this today: >> cenk: now do you understand that? the clinton era rates are 39.5 wear. all along, president obama was saying i'm taking away the bush tax cuts, we're going back to the clinton era rates right? all of a sudden not really going back to the clinton era rates. that's why i was saying you know what, they might increase the rates because president obama has said it way too many times not to increase the rates at all, but although as we've sheen you, they've also hint haded they might lower rates. he's not going to go back up and take the bush tax cuts away. the final might be 37%. politico same reporting as the wall street journal on that. they say it might be about $1.2 trillion in tax increases. they say realistically it could be closer to a trillion dollars. that's similar to what we've been hearing. the democrats are supposed to have leverage, but looks like they'll get the same trillion dollars that president obama has always been asking for. finally, or two final notes on this we've got the $1.2 trillion in cuts that we might be gett
hillary clinton said that the use of chemical weapons is a red line while president obama said that the use of chemical weapons would bring about severe consequences. now what exactly that means is not clear but this is really the most muscular type of phrase and language that both clinton and obama have used to describe the war in syria. it does appear the united states is taking a sort of more proactive approach. it doesn't appear the u.s. is getting involved militarily but this language is different than the sort of diplomatic language we've seen in the past. this comes as syrian rebels are pushing in on damascus. we're also hearing that the u.s. and nato have decided to send patriot missiles to the turkish border along syria to help turkey prevent any type of attack from syrian jets. this is all as part of a plan to sort of put more and more pressure militarily pressure on the assad regime. whether or not it will change the outcome of this war or change the, sort of result of what the assad regime is doing is still very much unclear, jon. jon: the death toll continues to ri

hillary clinton is weighing in on two major mideast situations, both with great u.s. interests involved. amid reports the obama administration is preparing to recognize syria's opposition council as the legitimate representative of the people, clinton notes rebels are now able to hold their ground and take the fight to government forces. >> we have been deeply involved in helping to stand them up, and we're going to carefully consider what more we can do. >>> and on iran's nuclear ambitions, clinton says with the u.s. election over, now's the time to see if there's any hope for negotiating in good faith. >> there is still a window of opportunity to reach some kind of resolution. >>> and back here to main street, usa, a couple of great stories for you. yesterday in sandy-stricken new jersey and new york, a secret santa was handing out $100 bills. the anonymous missouri man sought out people who had been devastated by hurricane sandy. and while he plans to hand out $100,000 in total, he says it's not about the money. it's about committing random acts of kindness. >>> speaking of random ac
a deadly nerve gas. so the direct warnings president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton delivered to syria come as that country's ally, russia, signals that the use of chemical weapons is a red line for their own support for syria. joining me now is nbc's chief pentagon correspondent jim jim miklaszewski. a speech that really didn't have anything having to do with what syria, clearly there's intelligence on the ground that has u.s. officials concerned. >> reporter: that's right, chuck. all the latest intelligence indicates that the u.s., nato, and particularly the syrian people are really staring the worst case scenario directly in the face. just about the time rebel forces started to make significant advances in the capital da m damascus, u.s. officials tell nbc news that the assad regime informed its chemical weapons corps to get prepared. and just about that time, u.s. intelligence noticed a flurry of activity around several of the chemical weapons sites, an indication, perhaps, that the chemical corps is moving two precan cursor chemicals to the same locations to weaponize art
. secretary of state clinton is underscoring president obama's warning that if the syrian government uses chemical weapons, the u.s. will take action. there's no evidence they've done more at this point than move the components around and it could be a bluff but officials believe they have access to several hundred missiles that could carry chemical warheads. we're back after the break. >>now let's get some real news.

very much. >> you got got it. jon: all kinds of speculation now who president obama will nominate to be the nation's top diplomat. as you know secretary of state hillary clinton is stepping down at the end of president obama's first term. on the short list u.n. ambassador susan rice as well as massachusetts senator john kerry. rice is making the rounds on capitol hill these days meeting with lawmakers who are critical of the comments that she made about the terror attack in benghazi that killed four americans. those meetings did not go very well or so it would seem from the comments from senators afterwards. senator kerry seems to be taking a different approach, staying out of the spotlight. asking supporters not to overtly lobby on his behalf. who is likely to get the job? angela mcglowan, fox news political analyst, marjorie clifton a arm toer consultant with the obama campaign and principal with clifton consulting. interesting thing, if there are to be, let's say president obama nominates susan rice and she is said to be his first choice. the guy who leads the hearings on the f

clinton. charles crowd hammer says president obama likes those tax rates so much let's let him live with them for everybody. >> what he will say is i wanted to do legislation to exempt the middle class, but the republicans wouldn't give me the bill. he is prepared, megyn, bluntly to sacrifice the interest of the larger whole to win a political fight. when i was working for clinton we did a deal with gingrich. there was never ever a sense that we would put politics ahead of getting a balanced budget. we got it, we won the election and this president is putting politics ahead of everything. megyn: if republicans give president obama the tax rates on the rich what do they have to negotiate with? why would they do it? >> i think president obama has the winning hand. >> he does. >> i'm not sure in the long term -- if there is a recession, either there won't be a recession or there will and the republicans will get the blame. that's and high wire act to do at this point. it's very risky from this kind of elect to take this. he could get 85% of what he wanted -- >> he's also gambling on on
clinton has made clear and president obama made clear that would invoke a completely different response from us. i think, though, we've got to be looking for ways to try to bring this ghastly conflict to an end. >> but what you have said that to piers morgan, you said we need to ramp up pressure on aside and i think there are people in the state department who said we've been trying to do that. what needs to be done? >> well, i think we are. but, i think we've also got to look at ways now that we give support to the syrian opposition, especially around this notion of how you protect certain parts of the territory for them. and really just send a signal to assad that this will only have one outcome. the important thing here is that is to show that in the end it is a matter of time. it's -- it's when and not if. now there are also, i think, signs that for russia and china, i think they would be prepared, possibly, to look at a way you could manage an outcome of this, so that you get some form of agreement that -- >> provide asylum, we're getting him out -- >> -- but for the rest of the wo
clinton who pushed it down. now president obama is pushing it way up. yet it would be nice to return to the basis of bill clinton, but that's not what we're doing. we're taking a little bit more here, a little bit more there, a little bit more over there. all to pay for all of this wonderful spending that the president wants. >> steve: maybe in four years when hillary runs for president. you have got to figure that's going to happen. >> i wonder what's going to happen to the economy. it's weak now, you raise taxes a little bit more, what happens to the economy? >> steve: so many people have been forecasting that the president does raise rates, couple of years ago, he said during a recession, that's the worst time to jack up rates. now we're not technically in a recession, but we're in a very soft edge. >> watch out, steve, 'cause here it comes, a little bit more. >> steve: thank you very much. stuart varney doesn't do show tunes, but does talk about the news of the day and politics and everything over on fox business exactly two hours and two minutes from right now. thank you. >> tha
to this, these taxes you and i were just discussing. >> yeah. and that's a crucial point, because obama has repeatedly said he wants to go back to clinton era rates, but that ignores this new surtax at the beginning of the year. if they take the top rate from 35 to 39.6, it'll actually be 43.4 on investment income because we'll have that additional surtax on top of that. so dividends, for instance, which are 15 now could be going all the way to 43.4 which could have a very negative impact on the stock market. megyn: so right now if you make money off dividends, which a lot of folks do. you know, it's not just the super rich who get dividend income from their stock investments, right now you pay a 15% tax on that, and president obama wants to change that to you should get taxed on that income as though it's your actual, like, salary. and if that, if he gets his way on that, then that income goes up to whatever your salary tax rate is, plus if you're over 200 or 250, the 3.8%, plus the .9% as well? >> >> it would be just the 3.8. the% 9 is for wage income above that 200 or 250. but it wou
was saying that, to me, is a great sign she is, in fact, on the path to running. >> well, bill clinton was the most valuable player out there. >> jennifer: absolutely. >> for the obama/biden campaign other than the two principles on the ticket. of course, every governor, every senator, every member of congress who was elected is also a super delegate who will choose the next president. >> jennifer: i don't see how the force -- the force the inexorable pull of this from those who support her and those who love her is just going to be too great. she needs to go to a spa. she needs to take a relaxing -- take a break. do the exercises. what she wants to do. but six months then we're back at it. all right. so you know, republicans have had some challenges appointing women. obviously we've all been talking about the number of women that were not appointed in the house republican caucus other than the one, candace miller. but the sunlight foundation, we were assuming it was because of sexism. the sunlight foundation has anothe
